'Pushpa' floral ring by Flora Bhattachary
Flora Bhattachary has drawn inspiration from the history of her family’s colonial links to India. She has investigated Hindu and Islamic culture, particularly the floral motifs and geometric structures which feature in Asian design. Intricate flowers carved in stone and richly textured and patterned gold reference and celebrate a dark, opulent and often obscured colonial history.
‘Pushpa’ (flower in Sanskrit), her collection for ‘Bloomin’ Jewels’, refers to the rich floral patterns found on Indian chintz exported to the west in the eighteenth century. Ranging from stylised, star-like pave patterns to hand-carved amethyst flower rings and earrings, the pieces exude the rich colour and pattern of Indian textiles.
Hand carved amethyst, ruby, 18ct yellow gold, finger size M
